The Master proudly states (in the voice of Obama) "I built that!"

That sounds a whole lot more like one of Trump's bombastic boasts though...

Would be marching to the beat of his own drum, if he didn't detest marching to any drumbeat at all so much.

That got to be a little personal, we are individuals and have our own 'code' or definitions for what we do.  Those using printed parts have every right to do so without sarcastic comments and put downs.  It takes all kinds after all and perhaps it is better to count to ten and rethink before commenting.

I call my post's my own but write with a keyboard and spellchecker, does that mean the words belong to the keyboard?

I used a model of New Horizons from that site. It had one drawback: the tripod on the main antenna was shown in the model as a solid pyramid, when in real life it's 3 thin legs. The level of detail in those models varies.
